Detailed description

"The Regal Film Society is a registered charity and operates from within the Regal Theatre, The Avenue, Minehead and, like the Theatre is run entirely by an amazing team of enthusiastic and friendly volunteers. The position is a voluntary role and you will be part of a small team of volunteers that work on a flexible rota to support the screening of digital films at the Regal Theatre, and also support live screening from the Royal Opera House (ROH) and other venues. You will work alongside, and assist the Regal Film Society's projectionist. Our current programme is available to view at https://www.regalfilmsociety.org/" "You need to be able to attend the Regal Theatre for a period of approximately two hours on one of the two days immediately preceding a film screening, to create and test the film play list; and from one hour before, and for the duration of an actual film screening to update and run the pre-show slides and monitor playback of the film. Full training and support will be provided for the role and ongoing support will be available from the film society's technician and team members. You will need to attend team meetings, usually held at the Regal Theatre, every 6 months, from 7.30 - 9pm. Films are usually screened at 7.30 pm on Tuesdays; live screenings from the ROH are more varied. Volunteers may claim out-of-pocket expenses in accordance with our policy on expenses. When on duty for film screenings the volunteer projection assistant may watch the film from the theatre."

About The Regal Film Society

The Regal Film Society screens an annual programme of monthly films for members from September to the end of June. In addition the film society organises fund-raising public screenings of mainstream film titles every month as well as live screenings of opera and ballet from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

The members' programme features at least 11 newly-released films from the UK and around the world. Many of these are independent films which do not receive the exposure they deserve in commercial cinemas. The season of films opens and closes with more high profile titles which are open to the public.

The Regal Film Society has its home in the voluntarily-run Regal Theatre in Minehead, Somerset, is itself entirely run by volunteers and is a member of the MATA Regal Theatre Company Ltd, which runs the theatre.

Founded in 1994, the film society has grown to become the largest film society in the south west and the second largest in the country with nearly 600 members.
